When you consider using textures to fill up your text, you need not limit yourself to the default textures that PowerPoint offers. You can always explore some third party custom textures including our own Scribble Custom Textures that provide your text with an organic look, as if someone scribbled lines with a pencil to fill them! You can also try some more custom textures from our Ppted Background Texture Collection.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.

Although you can fill your text so that it appears textured within PowerPoint, the final result depends upon the texture you use for the fill, and how well it contrasts with the slide background. For reasons of readability, make sure that the texture used is not too crowded or even multicolored.

Although you can link from one presentation to another in PowerPoint, you can essentially use the same concept to link to any other file! You can link to PDFs, Word documents, Excel sheets, video files, and anything else. The link will then open in the associated program. For example, a PDF will typically open in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Reader. Word files will open in Microsoft Word. Of course, this depends on whether you have a suitable program installed on your system!

You may have seen text used creatively as a container for picture fills so many times, but did you realize that you could do it within PowerPoint? Yes, all you need is PowerPoint and nothing else! Well, of course you still need imagination, the proper picture to use as a fill, and a nice thick, blocky font.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.

Styling text is one of those features that are either grossly overlooked or entirely over-used in PowerPoint. And, either of those situations can be a shame since PowerPoint allows you to do so much to text with its powerful WordArt feature.
